FLOTUS pushes for healthier meal options in satirical video

First Lady Michelle Obama’s push for healthier meal options in schools earned her a cameo appearance on the comedy website “Funny or Die.”

In the online faux trailer “Snackpocalypse,” high school students become junk food zombies after the school president runs an initiative to allow junk food and sodas in the vending machines. Actress Chloe Grace Moretz plays the role of the heroine and takes on the task of saving the students because she is “different” because she would rather eat healthy foods like apples and carrots.

After Moretz is able to rescue the apple from the last healthy vending machine, the clip cuts to Mrs. Obama watching the trailer and eating a carrot.

“Don’t you hate when trailers give away the whole movie?” Mrs. Obama says as she takes a bite of the carrot. “Can’t we just watch Frozen again?”


The first lady’s support for healthy living doesn’t stop with just promoting healthier eating options. On Wednesday, Mrs. Obama applauded and praised CVS for becoming the first national pharmacy chain to ban the sale of tobacco products.
